Wyvern Waste - Pawlett Hams Compensation

TEC have been involved in the creation and monitoring of compensation land at Pawlett/White House Hams, Somerset, since 2004 with Viridor (previously Wyvern Waste Ltd.).

This has involved an agreement to farm coastal grazing marsh for the benefit of breeding waders and for water voles.

Lapwings attempted to breed in the first year after management began, with successful breeding each year since.

Ditch reprofiling and new ditching have both been employed (see pictures below) to improve the aquatic biodiversity interest on site, with new ditches being rapidly colonised by vegetation.
